Tearsheet: The Troubleshooter In My Hands
This past weekend, I got a package in the mail.
A plain brown wrapper kind of package.
No, not that kind of package. Get your minds out of the gutter, kids.
Instead, this was a nice care package from Bard Constantine, which contained two copies of his recently published novel, The Troubleshooter.
And a very nice inscription in one of the books.
I know I’ve mentioned this in the near past, but having the book in my hands really made it real. There’s just something about the printed cover and page that is exciting. And, its always nice to add to the bookshelf.
Much thanks, again, to Bard for finding my work on the World Wide Web and reaching out to me to collaborate on the cover. And thanks, too, to the incredible artist/designer Stefan Prohaczka. He really made it all come together. He has a handle on “things from the past” like no other that I’ve come across. Pretty hard to believe he lives in 2012. Check out his site for more of his amazing retro work.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship….
